Tina Karol – Pomnyu (I Remember) album

Tina Karol – Pomnyu (I Remember) album

The 2006 contest sweetheart Tina Karol from Ukraine is perhaps most remembered by the nowadays Eurovision fans for turning a forgettable pop song into show stopping vocal fireworks that was “Show Me Your Love”. Tina’s respectable 7th placing made sure that she would keep busy in her native Ukraine. Since the contest Tina Karol gained fame for her heart-breaking ballads even being awarded the Honored Artist of Ukraine title in 2009 and releasing a total of 4 albums since “Show Me Your Love”. Unfortunately, her career success did not translate into personal life. Her husband, a father of their child and longtime producer has died of stomach cancer in 2013. A documentary film about Tina’s life “The Power of  Love and Voice” was released. You can watch it here with English subtitles. “Pomnyu” which translates as “I Remember” is a homage to her late husband with the classic Karol sound that she is known for. “Zakrili tvoi ochi” or “Your Eyes Closed” in English is an intense ballad that Tina almost cries during. As the title suggests, the song deals with death and does not require language knowledge to understand the pain behind an emotional Tina. The song after which the album is …

Conchita Wurst conquers London

Yesterday evening Conchita Wurst performed at London’s nightclub Heaven. A massive queue of people waiting to see this year’s Eurovision winner started forming around 11:30 p.m. and plenty were left outside as the venue was full around midnight.   It was roughly 1:30 a.m. when Wurst took on the same stage that has seen artists like Cher, Madonna, Kylie Minogue or Rita Ora. But before Conchita made her appearance Graham Norton was in charge of introducing her. She’s talented, she’s fabulous and she is unstoppable! The crowd was already cheering madly for Conchita when she opened the show with an acoustic version of Cher’s ‘Believe‘. She performed it in her usual style, that is, flawlessly. People were clearly expecting to listen ‘Rise Like A Phoenix’, but they’d have to wait, as the next song was a treat to Eurovision fans but completely new for the uninitiated. It was time for her previous attempt at reaching the Eurovision stage, ‘That’s What I Am‘. Even though the vast majority of the crowd did not really know the song, reaction was immediate and people danced through the three minutes. A cheering crowd was about to receive what they had gone for. Third in …

DR reacts to Danish politican

DR reacts to Danish politican

The social-democrat politician Lasse Quvang Rasmussen, who is the party’s fourth candidate for the European elections on 25 May has asked the DR and the EBU to disqualify Russia from this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, following it’s behavior on the Crimean peninsula. However, Pernille Gaardbo who is in charge of the contest this year, has shortly reacted: DR’s role  as the host of Eurovision is to produce three great  shows. The idea behind Eurovision Song Contest is to unite  Europe through music. All provisions relating to participation from each country are handled exclusively by the EBU, says Pernille Gaardbo to dr.dk Rasmussen suggests that by excluding Russia from the contest, it’s an alternative to the political and economic sanctions imposed by the West set against the country, as a result of the Crimean conflict with Ukraine. DR and EBU have made it clear, that despite the political situation, Russia will not be disqualified from the competition.
